At Sociology from Louisiana State University students learn the skills necessary to produce original research. Typically, this is done by developing a close working relationship with one or more faculty members and co-authoring research papers with them. In this way the student begins as an apprentice and finishes with a substantial research record. The goals of this apprenticeship include presenting papers at professional meetings, publishing papers in professional journals, and participating in the preparation of grant proposals for research funding.
The PhD program in sociology is designed to prepare the student for a career that combines both research and teaching in one or more areas of the discipline. In addition, students should develop a strong specialty area and establish a research program in that area.
